    I bought the blue X, but I want the os user interface to change the color from blue to white. I have asked many after-sales service staffs, they all said it can't be changed. But I noticed that when they help the car owner to replace 20 inch wheel with 22 inch whell, they can change the pic of wheel showed on the screen, so I believe that the color can also be changed! I'm in Shanghai, China, thanks a lot to everyone!!! This question confused me for a long time.

    You just need to make an appointment to Service Center. They might charge you a fee for changing the icon colors.

    If not, you can try to pay for some do-it-yourself experts in this forum to remote access your car and change the programming codes for you.

    Trade in your blue car for a white one and it should change accordingly in the UI. ;)

    Not my specialty.

    Do-It-Yourself Experts in this forum that I can think of are:

    Can Tesla directly! Or email their service and a tech can work with you. Took almost a week for me to get my wheels updated for my avatar, but it got done.

    Maybe I am going to ask a stupid question because I like cars but right now I don't know much about cars, can I know which car are you talking about?

    I just hover the mouse over my icon on right top and it opens up to another menu and I click on "Conversations" --> "Start a New Conversation" then type in wk057, Ingineer without the "@" for "Participants"
